John and I virtually grew up together, I am 2 month younger. We attended aylesford secondary and both lived in â€˜teapotâ€™, only one in the world?
From say 8 to 16 years spent a lot of our spare time at his house which was up the lane about 200 yards from my home opposite secondary school entrance. The corner shop and primary school entrance half way between.
Johnâ€™s parents Dennis and Joyce used the rear downstairs room for John and friends to play. I remember the room with large beige hardboard sheet on floor. We played Monopoly with various invented modified rules creating incredible wealth or debts.
Cricket rules were assimilated from test match commentary on background radio.
At least one litter of puppies started life there.
During most weeks John was kicking ball to garage door at side of house. I seem to remember his cricket skills also in demand.
Dad Dennis played for Maidstone, centre half I think, in Isthmian League. Gold and Black colours like Wolves. Occasionally I was invited to watch home matches when after we would join players in a massive concrete communal bath then a slap up roast dinner to follow.
One tragedy: Maidstone United history- goalkeeper had to defend goal and opposition attacker died after collision.
School PE master encouraged John in early development
At 16 years John signed for Spurs and me to 5 year indentured apprenticeship with Tilling Stevenâ€™s engineering
We lost touch, over 55 years no contact. Doncaster IKEA work reference assumes he is back in UK. We need to touch base.
Would welcome contact email or phone?
Knew John very well when he lived opposite me with Ray Evans in Edmonton. John was playing for Spurs at the time. Had plenty of good times with him.
John Cutbush was working at the Ikea Distribution Centre near Doncaster about 10 years ago. My ex-colleague was his manager and asked him if he was a football fan, he replied "er, I played in the 75 Cup Final boss"
I played in the same Aylesford school side with John in 1962 / 65 I was on the right wing and my brother Patrick Buffini was a left winger John played centre Forward and scored a rake of goals so I always was intrigued why he finished up playing in defensive role for Fulham, I enjoyed those great school days
John did go to Aylesford Secondary School, 60 - 65. I well remember playing with him in the school team - he was outstanding even then, I would really like to know where he is now?
Did John go to Aylesford Secondary School in 63 to 65?
